    Table Runner ready to swap for the end of September

    Here is a runner that will be in the table runner swap. It has to be ready to mail at the end of this month. I actually got it done on time! I wonder where its' new home will be?

    I used a spool block and turned them to create the stars. It will look good on a long table at 46" and nice for autumn.

    Very Nice! Is the embroidered saying on the runner? I like what it says.

    GEMRM, yes the saying is on the binding. I do this on most of the projects I make, a different saying for every quilt.
    I am glad you like it. Victor Hugo was a master writer.

    Clever idea to turn the spools. If you had not "pointed" that out, I would not have noticed. NICE!!

    Wow what an optical illusion. I didn't "see" the spools until I went back to it and suddenly, there were the spools! Great runner and reversible to boot.

    Clever use of the spool pattern. I use the binding for my labels as you do the quotes. The quote idea is intriguing. Someone will be happy to have this live with them. :-)

    The lettering is done on the binding before it is attached. The lettering feature on my Bernina is one of my favorite things to use. Thanks for liking it.

    here is a simple tute for trying it if your machine has this function.
